I'm vegan too! I love animals and would never stoop so low as to eating them ;_;
I've developed breasts from consuming so much soy to make up for the protein and amino acids which I could otherwise get from eating meat, but I still won't eat murdered animals. People who come up with recipes like http://www.bbqaddicts.com/blog/recipes/bacon-explosion/
should be ashamed of themselves.
I also am vegan for the environment. the growth hormones in runoff from farms pollutes the water and the ecosystem. Every time I drive my hummer by a farm, I think to myself "those jerks, they're polluting my water and air."
But yeah, I love being vegan despite its obvious disadvantages, and it's great to see others making the same choice to be vegan!
